Overview

The heart-pounding sequel to The Lighthouse Land

Jamie O'Neill is back on Earth, where no one but his best friend Ramsay knows he's the hero of a great war that saved an alien nation. Now he's back to being a kid with one arm, no girlfriend, and a band that plays bad songs about intergalactic romance. Then news breaks on the Internet: a space probe has picked up a coded message from far across the galaxy. NASA's best scientists can't figure out what it says. Only Jamie and Ramsay realize it's a message from Altair. They're needed again.

This thrilling sequel to The Lighthouse Land is packed with even more adventure, battles, and humor than its predecessor, and secures Adrian McKinty's place as one of science fiction's most exciting new voices.

Praise for the Lighthouse Trilogy: 'McKinty, previously known for adult crime novels, brings an attuned ear for dialogue and a taut pacing to his first YA outing, the launch title in the Lighthouse Trilogy.''Publishers Weekly
